Tunny Grattidge joins the Chachawan team with a wealth of bartending experience, coming from Sydney’s famed Mr Wong. Tunny brings passion, knowledge and a love for cocktail culture to the bar, as well as his people-loving, cheeky personality. With strong leadership skills and vast experience in the industry, Tunny adds a dynamic spirit to the team. “Hong Kong teas are very prominent in my cocktails, such as the luxurious Imperial Lapsang, jasmine tea and as well mandarin oolong. At Chachawan we use Hong Kong teas, classic modern cocktails and infuse that with elements of Isaan cuisine. The response so far has been phenomenal,” he says.
